Strengthening America through Civics Education
ARE YOU READY TO ENHANCE YOUR CLASSROOM WITH CIVICS INSTRUCTION?

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

Philadelphia, PA, 19107
The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness invites K-12 teachers across the nation to our inaugural Teacher's Professional Development Conference.
Participants will engage in crafting standards-driven units from the nationally adopted C3 Framework for Social Studies Standards and prepare lessons for civic minded thinking through active student engagement in the study of historical primary documents. Facilitators will model instructional strategies and techniques as they guide participants through the kind of learning experiences that will prepare our students for civic life. There will be time built in to the conference for participants to apply and practice so they can walk away with lesson plans for immediate use in their classrooms.
The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG) is a non-partisan, educational, not- for profit (501c3) organization whose mission is to promote and provide comprehensive civics education that informs students and families about the greatness of America and the power of the American Dream. FLAG supports teachers in expanding their understanding of how to infuse high-quality civics education into all elementary, middle and high school classrooms across the nation.
